    this sounds like a harware concern, suggest to confirm this you reload the operating system from the backup disks, if the keyboard still fould up then the laptop need a new mother board.

Definition for keyboard


As the name implies, a keyboard is basically a board of keys. Along with the mouse, the keyboard is one of the primary input devices used with a computer. The keyboard's design comes from the original typewriter keyboards, which arranged letters and numbers in a way that prevented the type-bars from getting jammed when typing quickly. This keyboard layout is known as the QWERTY design, which gets its name from the first six letters across in the upper-left-hand corner of the keyboard.

While the design of computer keyboards may have come from typewriters, today's keyboards have many other keys as well. Modifier keys, such as Control, Alt/Option, and Command (Mac) or the Windows key (Windows) can be used in conjunction with other keys as "shortcuts" to perform certain operations. For example, pressing Command-S (Mac), or Control-S (Windows) typically saves a document or project you are working on. Most of today's computer keyboards also have a row of function keys (F1 through F16) along the top of the keyboard, arrow keys arranged in an upside-down T, and a numeric keypad on the right-hand side. Some keyboards have even more buttons, allowing you to change the system volume, eject a CD, or open programs such as your e-mail or Web browser.

How to use the memory function


hit the "Mode" button on the left of the keyboard until the indicator in the display points to "store", and follow directions.
to recall files hold down the "Code" key and hit he key under where it says "Recall"(above the number keys on the keyboard. again follow directions experiment. you can't hurt the T/W by hitting keys.

You probably have a keyboard problem. With the T/W turned on tap the space up key and the micro up & down keys if they space without pressing them you may need a keyboard. If you find the offending key try popping off the key top this may get you by for a while.
